Research Ethics Approval Procedures

The welfare of our research participants and the integrity of our research is paramount to the University. To ensure both are addressed, every research project is required to be undertaken in accordance with commonly agreed standards of good practice as laid down in the Declaration of Helsinki, by the Research Councils and the European Science Foundation amongst others. This page details the mandatory procedures Sheffield Hallam University researchers must follow in order to comply with our research ethics policy and procedures.

Procedures for staff and doctoral research

All staff, doctoral and MbyRes research at Sheffield Hallam must undergo ethical scrutiny. Ethics applications and reviews are managed through Converis, the University's research management system.

Guidance on how to use the system is available by clicking on the following link

Existing users of the Converis pre-award module/grants system can login as normal. First-time users can set their password by clicking on the 'forgot password' link on the front page. If you cannot gain access, please email converis@shu.ac.uk
